Footage of viral 12-year-old American football player Jeremiah Johnson in action is insane

Footage of 12-year-old internet sensation Jeremiah Johnson in action is incredible, with the American football player as dominant as expected.

Johnson, from Fort Worth, Texas, went viral this week after collecting the U12 MVP honours at the Youth National Championships in Miami, Florida.

Johnson posed with his trophy but left fans in utter astonishment as many could not believe that he was 12 years of age.

After all, he boasts a hulking physique, a moustache that Steve Harvey would have been proud of and appears to have a number tattoos on his right arm.

The reaction to Johnson was ridiculous and the spotlight on him only increased after a video showed him confirming his age.


In a video doing the rounds, Johnson was asked how old he is by a man. Confirming he has not embarked on his teenage years just yet, he responded saying, “I’m 12.”

The two then shared a handshake and Johnson was told he deserved the award that he was proudly holding.

According to his personal Twitter account, Johnson stands at 5ft 11 and weighs 198lbs - equating to 14 stone and 2lbs.

He's clearly much bigger than your average 12 year-old and so it is now surprise to see him dominate on the field. Johnson predominantly plays as a running back but is also able to be deployed as a defensive end and a linebacker.

On Twitter, where he only has 418 followers at the time of writing, Johnson regularly posts clips of his highlights and he absolutely runs riot.


One video sees Johnson absolutely cream an opponent, charging like a freight train and producing a brutal tackle that knocked him into next week.

In other videos, he can be seen scoring touchdowns with absolute ease after storming through anyone who dared to get in his way.

Johnson appears unstoppable, with no one big enough to match his freakish power and strength. He's a cheat code and Tyreek Hill, wide receiver for the Miami Dolphins, has been shook by what he's seen.

Accompanied by a laugh emoji, he tweeted: "If that 12 year old really 12 my son not playing football, these kids built different."

Remember the name.
